It seems like Fed was out-served today. And I wonder... would Fed be half the player he is without his amazing serve?
Don´t know about Fed, but Nole would have an RG trophy right now had Fed´s serve been less amazing.

Re: Sculpting a victory: A Pygmalion Slogan for the Australian Open! F v Murray

Dear Nole Chat,

I would just like to humbly retract my words from a few hours ago. I had consumed a few too many alcoholic beverages due to the commencement of Australia Day and uttered some truly unforgivable sentences that I wish I could take back now. When I woke up this morning in my frazzled state, the thought of supporting someone other than Lord Nolemort was completely ludicrous and nonsensical. I know I am in no position to ask this, but I am asking for your forgiveness here in the hope that we all get to bear witness to another shirtless Nole lifting aloft the Australian Open trophy... man those pecs... they're bloody scrumptious mate... yeah...

Kind Regards,

Andrey

Re: Sculpting a victory: A Pygmalion Slogan for the Australian Open! F v Murray

I have a very good feeling about this final.

I was rooting for Federer as well, because Nole/Roger matches are always fun and I want Nole to win a slam by beating Roger in the final. It will have to be Wimbledon, then.

I understand people are a little worried about Murray, but Roger was giving Andy too many free points. And Andy choked at crucial stages. Andy's playing really well: still no better than Nole.

If Nole starts the match focused from the beginning, serves well and doesn't go away, he has a great chance on Sunday.

Nole's dominance over the next years will be determined by how he handles Murray this year. Sunday's match is more important than just a slam final: it can help dent Murray's confidence vs Nole.

I'm so hoping Nole will win.
